Sur la Mer is the thirteenth album released by The Moody Blues, released in 1988. It features the hit single "I Know You're Out There Somewhere", a sequel to their 1986 hit "Your Wildest Dreams". Much of the music on this album would fit in the "synthpop" genre, though it does bear more rock and acoustic influences than its predecessor.
Longtime flautist Ray Thomas does not appear on this album at all, despite recording backing vocals during the sessions. For reasons not entirely clear, producer Tony Visconti removed Thomas's backing vocals from the final release of the album, much to the anger and disgust of Patrick Moraz, who angrily accused Visconti of tailoring the album for the radio as well as his decision to exclude Thomas from the album.
